Alongside their extensive and wonderful productions, Theatre Royal offer a whole host of unusual and engaging workshops for adults, children and families. The ‘Creative Learning’ programme gives everyone an opportunity to find out more about the inner workings of theatre. For this season, running from April until July, Theatre Royal will be working with a whole host of Brighton based Theatre Makers and Artists who devise and lead the imaginative selection of workshops for all the family to enjoy.
‘Skip’s After School Club’ is a friendly, fun and informal scheme of workshops that will take place every other Wednesday during term time. Each session is themed, with the fun ranging from ‘James & the Giant Peach’ to ‘Slimetastic’ to ‘Secret Agents’ and more. Each session is £7.50 (with a discount for children in receipt of Pupil Premium and/or free school meals). For children who haven’t attended before there’s a chance to check out all the fun for free on either the 11th or 25th April so book your session now! The fun includes drama and craft activities and a look on Theatre Royal’s famed stage. This is a wonderful chance for 6-10 year olds to explore their creativity and meet other kids who share the same passions.
For the two to four year olds of Brighton and their inquisitive parents, ‘Stories with Skip’ will bring themed stories, puppets, games and crafts once a month until July. Themes come in the shape of ‘Under The Sea’, ‘The Jungle’ and ‘Camping’ and promise to be a good time for both parent and baby. ‘Skip’s Family Workshops’ extend the family fun to arts, crafts and theatre for children aged 5-10. The informal themed sessions are led by experienced and creative artists and members of the theatrical world. The people running the sessions will guide you through all of the fun whilst you make, play and run amok. They will run once a month until July and have the exciting themes of ‘Crazy Colours & Optical Illusions’, ‘The Circus Comes to Town’ and ‘Mexican Fiesta!’ with biscuits and drinks and a sneak peek of the stage provided this will definitely be a hit with adults and children alike!
